Press Contact: Dave Lanni firstname.lastname@example.org
Bingham Farms–Arden Companies, one of America’s leading manufacturers and marketers of outdoor products, is proud to be celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. Arden’s first manufacturing facility opened in Ionia, Michigan and made cleaning aids, but the business has evolved and grown steadily over the years.
“When we started Arden, I was 23 years old, inexperienced and naïve about how to build a company. Thanks to the help of so many people, Arden has developed into a great world-class organization and a source of pride for all our employees,” said Bob Sachs, Arden’s founder and Chairman.
Currently, Arden supplies outdoor cushions and pillows to the largest retailers in North America, including Walmart, The Home Depot, Lowe’s, Target and more. It does this by leveraging a complex global supply chain that supports U.S. manufacturing facilities in California, Indiana, Texas, and North Carolina.
Although Arden’s overseas reach has expanded to offices in Taiwan and Shenzhen, China, the corporate office has kept to its roots and is located in Bingham Farms, just north of Detroit, Michigan. In addition to its outdoor cushion and pillow business, Arden signed a license agreement with The Bombay Company in 2012 and began selling a new outdoor line of Bombay merchandise in May 2014.
“I am extremely proud of where Arden is today, but without the support of our customers, Comerica Bank, other long-standing business partners and suppliers, and, especially, all our dedicated and talented employees, we could not have reached this wonderful 50th Anniversary milestone,” said Sachs.
Arden Companies is one of America’s leading manufacturers and marketers of outdoor products with 50 years of industry experience. Headquartered in Bingham Farms, MI, Arden maintains operational centers in Fort Wayne, IN, Amarillo, TX, Rancho Cucamonga, CA, and Sanford, NC with two international locations in Shenzhen, China and Taipei, Taiwan.
